From basic to polished and professional, all by herself
Catharina uses her site to offer perinatal counselling resources and coaching services.
Catharina, tell us about yourself:
I provide survival tools to help new parents stay sane during the foggy early months, and give people who may want counselling an idea of how I work and what to expect.
Where did you start?
I’d done a course in WordPress basics (shout out to Lisa Wood at Sprout New Media) when I discovered the Site Setup Kit, so I began the Kit at Module 2. This was the perfect way to improve and polish the basic site I’d started to put together: all by myself, quickly and at a reasonable price. Miraculous.
What was also invaluable was (is) the forum where we can ask questions, even silly ones, and receive ongoing support from Pamela and Wendy.
What was the most challenging part of putting together your new site?
My biggest challenge was how to bridge the gap between the basic site and something more, without handing the whole endeavour over to a website designer, or e-mailing my WordPress coach every few minutes for advice.
I needed an online package with an expert who would spell out each step. In super-simple language. So that I could get everything done and in my own time, but preferably yesterday. And at a reasonable price. With visuals explaining each and every step, because otherwise Iâ€˜d get lost.
Pamela’s newsletter popped into my Inbox just as I was pondering all this. And I knew right away that the Site Setup Kit was it.
What advice do you have for people who are about to start working on their websites?
Creating your own website is totally worth it and can be much easier than you think.
- There’s a lot of noise out there: trust your instincts.
- Progress, not perfection.
- Less is more.
- Find out which areas you need to know about eg website design, blogging, marketing. Spend a limited time learning all you can from experts in each. Then subscribe only to those whose work you resonate with, like and trust.
Anything you’d like to add?
Deep thanks to Pamela and Wendy.
